Perfect
More home than hostel and that does not mean boring! Its a refection of the warmth of the staff and chilled nature of Ubuntu. dont get too stoked on how good the FREE breakfast and WiFi are. They are nothing compared to the top deck views, braii nights, TV/chill area, every night, jaffle maker, value for money, owner/staff. List is WAY to long. In my last 5 years of "hosteling" this is one of favourite stays. It must be, its my first review! Thanks guys.

Fantastic
I've stayed in a number of hostels around the world in the last 3 years and would have to say this is the best hostel I have ever stayed in. It has such an incredible vibe and is in a fantastic location with incredible views. It is really clean, has a good kitchen with plenty of cooking utensils, and really inviting common areas. They often organise cheap group meals, have free internet, free breakfast, and cheap surfboard hire. Due to the smaller size of this hostel it was so easy to get to know everyone staying there, had a real homey feel about it. The staff were all incredibly friendly and the owners were the best I have encounter. I initially booked for 4 nights and in the end stayed for about 2 weeks.

Fantastic
We arrived for one night, and stayed for six! It's hard to put my finger on why the place is so great, it just has an amazing chillout vibe; filled with friendly people; and with beautiful views of the surf, whales, and dolphins. It is a lot more personal than a regular hostel, and is by far the best experience we had backpacking in South Africa. Ubuntu rocks!
